Good shower.
The shower was easy to plumb in and works very well. Pressure is fine working off mains pressure via combi boiler. The build quality is above average with easy to use controls. Have been using it almost every day for the last six months and still looks like new with only a wipe over with a micro fibre cloth.

Brilliant!
Bought this as a replacement for a similar unit (not Bristan), and it fitted the bill perfectly. The quality is excellent, and the service from QS first class - the price was the best I could find, and the unit was delivered in just a couple of days with excellent tracking throughout.

Hi there. As this is replacing an existing shower, is the height of the riser pole adjustable? Dont want it too low, nor hitting the ceiling if it isnt adjustable then i will have to keep looking. Ali

Answered By QS Team :
We can confirm that the riser rail is not adjustable, however it can be cut down, this must be a clean cut from the bottom of the rail.

Was this answer helpful? Yes - No

can the rigid riser rail be shortened? regards. Guy.

Answered By QS Team :
The riser rail on the Carre shower can be cut down at the end that attaches to the shower bar itself. As long as this is a clean cut then as this is a push fit connection then the riser rail will still work.

I have a very low pressure system. I have approximately 0.2 bar pressure. Will this product work for me ?

Answered By Deborah :
This shower was purchased for a property I rent out, so I have no personal knowledge of how it functions. However, I remember it being very stylish and have received no bad feedback from my tenants and know of no issues with regards its reliability. Sorry I am unable to assist further.

Answered By Anthony :
If its 2bar yes but if 0.2 bar no shower would work well & would need a pump

Answered By tim :
i would not recommend this shower on a low pressure system unless you have a pump on the system regards tim

Answered by Verified Purchaser Was this answer helpful? Yes - No


Answered By Ray :
The spec says 0.5 bar min. (about 16 foot head), 0.2 is about 6 foot, so the flow would be more like a dribble, you need a booster pump or a low pressure mixer valve; they do not come with a diverter switch valve; but appear to go down to 0.1 bar.

Answered by Verified Purchaser Was this answer helpful? Yes - No


Answered By Jon :
Hi, This valve will not work for you if your pressure is approx 0.2 bar. The valve needs a minimum of 0.5 bar to operate, there is a lot of internal resistance and the height of the the shower head in relation to base of your Cold water storage cistern might be only about 300 mm so not great pressure. The cheapest solution to your problem is to fit a shower pump, hope this helps.

Answered by Verified Purchaser Was this answer helpful? Yes - No


Answered By Russel :
my water pressure is ok not fantastic with hot water fed by combo boiler the shower is fine to use with no noticeable drop in pressure at the shower compared to the taps, I think the volume of water at the head is more important

Answered by Verified Purchaser Was this answer helpful? Yes - No


Answered By Avril :
This product is only suitable for a high pressure system or a pumped system for that you would need a hot water cylinder & a cold water tank in the loft With an independent feed to the pump.

Answered by Verified Purchaser Was this answer helpful? Yes - No



Could you tell me the distance from the wall to the shower head of the Carre shower

Answered By QS Team :
The distance from the wall to the centre of the shower head is approximately 460mm.
